COSI had it’s compatibility test with CSBF last Wednesday. We had to wait for the excitement surrounding Warbirds to settle down and we needed a full day of good weather. The science team arrived at 5am to go through all of our checks to be ready for the gondola pick up by the launch vehicle at 8am. After hours of testing outside and only a few minor glitches we were happy to declare success by that evening.
Now that compatibility has been passed, we’re waiting patiently for a flight opportunity. While we wait, we can continue to take calibration data. You can never have enough calibration data!
We will post here when the weather gives us a chance at a launch.
